The Minstrel Players Theatre Company of Northport Village kick off their 2013 Season with a Spring production of Tim Kelly’s classic comic murder mystery, “The Butler Did It, Again!” Performances will be over two weekends only on Saturday, April 27th and May 4th at 8 P.M. and Sunday,  April 28 and May 5th at 3 P.M. matinee performances at Houghton Hall – Trinity Episcopal Church, 130 Main Street, Northport Village.

The production will be directed by Minstrel founding member, Ray Palen, with a cast containing returning Minstrels: Roseann Baldanza, Susan Burton, Lisa Casillo, Bob Domingo, Evan Donnellan, Tricia Ieronimo, Kevin Kelly, Stephanie Leinoff, Karen Mercorella, Ray Palen, Tara Palen and Rick Peters. The ‘World Class’ crew is rounded out with Robert Cashman, Technical Director; Debbie Palen, Assistant Director; Esteban Lopez, Stage Manager; Liam Vollmer, Crew; and Bernie Caprera, Lighting Director. “The Butler Did It, Again!” is a delightful comedy that spoofs classic mystery plays, but with a decidedly American flavor. Miss Maple, a society dowager noted for her “imaginative” weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to a gothic Southern Mansion named Spanish Moss where she plans to introduce her latest find–horror author, Ruth Dice. When the other authors realize that they are being supplanted by Ruth in Miss Maple’s publishing company they will do anything to stay in her favor –even if that means solving a murder or committing one themselves. Laughter and classic mystery thrills abound in this unique and hilarious production!

The Minstrel Players are committed to bringing high quality, affordable theater to the Long Island Region. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for Seniors and Children under 12.
